Is the A's rotation the best in the majors? Early numbers lean that way...
A quick note before today's game agains the Orioles. The A's rotation is the only one in the majors that have not suffered a loss. The starters are 6-0 with a 2.26 era through 12 games.
What does this mean? The young, injured rotation that no one believed in prior to the season is all of a sudden in the discussion for the best rotation in the league. Who would have thought that a rotation comprised of two pitchers who did not play in 2009, one who did not play from the end of July to the end of the season, an extremely young second year pitcher, and a spastic youngster who has mind problems would be this good?
Sure, not every start has been fantastic, but they have all been just good enough at the worst to keep the A's in games. Just wanted to pass along the info, hopefully I won't jinx Brett Anderson today.
Here's to knocking on wood and no jinxing.
